Mole Creek Caves Trip (Tasmania)

Had this weekend booked a couple of months ago and it happened to be on the weekend the austouring bunch came to town.

Four of us left on Saturday morning and headed to Mole Creek via the back roads and it seemed we would run into the austouring group at many places as they went to devils gullet which was in our direction.Also had a visit from Dirtisgood.

We stayed at the Mole Creek Caravan Park which is a top place to stay and visit the area.Info

The Caves are in the Karst National Park, Cave Info
Quote:
The Mole Creek Karst National Park was declared in 1996 to provide protection for some of the finest and most visited cave systems in the State, including Marakoopa and King Solomons Cave. Both caves are open to the public, and provide the opportunity to take a deeper look into the fascinating world of 'karst' landscapes.
While in the area we also went to the Trowunna Wildlife Park, Info Here
